Things To Do in France FAQs

  • When is the best time to experience our exclusive activities in France?

    The best time to visit France and explore will depend on the activities and excursions you wish to experience on your holiday. Many southern regions in France are blessed with a beautiful Mediterranean climate, so if you are looking to soak up some sun, we would advise going between May and October.

    If you are heading on a cultural break in the likes of Paris or Champagne, you can enjoy these fantastic locations all year round. Just bear in mind that in the colder months, you may encounter some inclement conditions, so pack additional layers of clothing so you are fully prepared, whatever the weather.

    When it comes to holidays in the French Alps, we'd recommend travelling in the winter and early spring months. This means you'll make the most of the snow-capped peaks for skiing and other exciting activities.

  • What are some of the best holiday activities in France for a family?

    Whether you have little ones joining you on your trip or older children who are keen to explore their adventurous side, there are endless opportunities for fun things to do in France that the whole family can enjoy.

    Many of our family-friendly luxury resorts in France include iconic kids' clubs where your children can enjoy participating in a range of outstanding activities and experiences. From skiing and snowboarding group lessons to snorkelling in the Mediterranean Sea, there's something for all ages and abilities.
